FORT WORTH, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) You know it’s going to be cold when the entire state of Texas is under some sort of winter-related alert.


From tomorrow morning at 6:00 am to Friday at noon, North Texas is under a Wind Chill Advisory. The wind chill could reach -5º, which raises concerns about hypothermia.


A Freeze Warning is also in effect for North Texas from 6:00 pm tomorrow through 9:00 am Friday. This means that temperatures will drop below 10º, threatening pets, plants, plumbing and people.


Temperatures will start in the mid-40s on Thursday morning, but as soon as the front arrives, temperatures will drop rapidly. Keep in mind that afternoon wind chills will be in the teens and single digits…and that’s not the worst.


Friday morning is when the wind chill is expected to be below zero for the entire area. Hopefully by mid-morning it will feel like 0° and will improve a bit during the afternoon, although it is still bitterly cold and dangerously cold.


Hopefully the highs will be just above freezing on Saturday, but the chills will still feel like the 20s. We are finally above freezing, area wide, for Sunday.


Don’t forget your coat, gloves, hats, scarves, etc. tomorrow!
